Now would be a good time to get weened, 20-30 lb piglets. They'll be just about the right size by fall.

On average, they'll gain about 1lb per day (less when they are small but more after 3 months). and they'll gain about 1 lb for every 7 lbs of feed. After they get around 150 lbs, that feed ratio drops and they'll consume more but gain less.

that's another good reason to whack 'em out \:D

Excellent topic here IMO. I've noticed the piglets for sale on LSN lately. Would one acre hold 2 piglets until they reached 150#?

I agree.Some people raise 1 in an 8x8 pen. I like to see them be able to move a little. But all they do is eat and sleep. Like a democrat \:D

Good luck with them. I have never eaten a wild one but most people say the wildones taste better.
